Three shares along the energy transition value chain: Plug Power is currently unstoppable. Yesterday, the stock of the hydrogen pureplay again gained around 5%. On a one-month horizon, the gain is now around 50%. And it could go on because Plug Power had fresh orders in its luggage at yesterday's analyst day. The BYD share has also regained momentum in recent weeks. If it manages to jump above USD 33.50, the way is clear for the time being. Globex Mining is also worth a closer look. With this share, investors can add a broad commodity portfolio to their portfolio and thus benefit from the super cycle in a risk-reduced manner.

    Globex Mining: Commodity supercycle with risk buffer

    Globex Mining is not known to every investor. But those who want to profit from the commodity supercycle should take a closer look at the share. Because with it, you get the commodity supercycle into your portfolio. The Canadians are involved in over 200 commodity projects and thus have a broadly diversified portfolio. This includes precious metals such as gold, silver, palladium and platinum and base metals such as copper, zinc, lead and nickel. Specialty metals and minerals such as iron, molybdenum, lithium and rare earth metals may also not be missing. Globex Mining sells or leases the projects to other companies and, in return, receives cash, shares and/or royalty payments on successful subsequent production.

    Because of the numerous holdings, shareholders receive a regular news flow. For example, Globex recently announced the planned sale of the Dalhousie nickel-copper-cobalt project to Burin Gold Corp. The project is located in Quebec, Canada, and comprises 31 claims. A corresponding letter of intent was signed. According to the agreement, Globex will receive CAD 1.5 million and 4 million Burin shares. In addition, Burin commits to investing CAD 5 million in exploring Dalhousie over the next 4 years. Globex Mining will also receive a 3% gross metal royalty on all payable metals.

    Since the end of May, Globex shares have gained a good 20% and are now trading back at EUR 0.55. If the newsflow remains positive, the year high at EUR 0.67 should at least be tested. The market capitalization of just over EUR 30 million seems to have room for improvement.

    BYD: New batteries and model offensive in France

    BYD's shares are also repeatedly rated too cheap, especially compared to rival Tesla. Operationally, the Chinese e-car specialist has been delivering one record after another for months. In recent months, the share price has finally been able to rise again. If it manages a sustained leap above EUR 30.50, the way up is clear, at least from a chart perspective. And operationally, things are going well anyway: the Company can even afford not to enter the US market for the time being. Instead, it is concentrating on its home market of China and on Europe. BYD is building a factory to produce sodium-ion batteries in the Chinese province of Jiangsu. These are considered an alternative to lithium batteries but currently have a short range due to their lower energy density. On the other hand, they score with a lower price. From BYD's point of view, sodium-ion batteries are suitable, for example, for very small vehicles that are used for short distances.

    There are also new developments at BYD in terms of European expansion. This summer, the Company plans to launch a model offensive in France. Five e-cars, the Atto 3, Han, Tang, Dolphin and Seal, will soon be sold there. The expansion is accompanied by partnerships with four large French dealer groups. Together, a total of around 100 stores are to be opened nationwide by 2025 - 20 sales locations already in the current year.

    BYD is also active in Europe in Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia, Belgium and other smaller countries. It will be exciting to see how many vehicles BYD will actually sell in Europe this year.

    Plug Power: Unstoppable

    The Plug Power share currently shows how quickly sentiment can turn. After initially more than halving in value this year, the stock has shot up by 50% within a month. Initially, the Company had published a sales forecast of USD 1.4 billion. Analysts had previously had USD 1.3 billion on the cards. The "US National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap" is also causing euphoria among Plug Power shareholders. In this document, the US Department of Energy describes how the US is to achieve global leadership in the hydrogen market. Companies in the sector can therefore look forward to substantial subsidies and incentives.

    Yesterday, Plug Power held its analyst day. And fittingly, there was also operational news. Plug's electrolysers will support the first hydrogen production plant for heavy-duty vehicles in Southern California. Plug Power's partner is Avina. The Company plans to produce and supply green hydrogen to fleet and filling station operators. Each of Plug's electrolysis units will enable Avina to produce up to 2 tonnes of green hydrogen per day (TPD) or 730 tonnes per year. Plug's 5 MW turnkey electrolyser is the largest outdoor solution available on the market with the smallest footprint.

    "Plug and Avina's shared commitment to offsetting carbon emissions in hard-to-decarbonize sectors through the deployment of innovative green hydrogen solutions at scale makes this partnership a perfect fit," said Sanjay Shrestha, CSO and General Manager of Energy Business at Plug. "Driven by our leading electrolyser technology and unrivalled manufacturing capabilities, we look forward to working with such an agile partner as Avina to accelerate the transition to clean energy in Southern California, a forward-looking alternative energy market."

    Euphoria is back at Plug Power. The share price appears overbought, but momentum is strong. At BYD, the share price is also finally pointing north again. The upward trend at Globex is still fresh, but the diversified business model within the exciting commodities market is promising.

    The major stock market barometers, the DAX and Dow Jones, continue to surge and rush to new highs almost daily. Currently, one of the hottest sectors is the semiconductor industry, which is reporting record figures due to the emergence of artificial intelligence. In contrast, another future topic, electromobility, is currently in correction mode. Market leaders such as Tesla and BYD have seen their stock market value fall dramatically. Currently, it appears that these stocks have found a bottom from which the next upward movement could begin.

    Uranium with exploding demand! Kraken Energy ideally positioned, hydrogen with Nel ASA and Plug Power in rebound?

    Some politicians are feverishly dreaming of making energy generation climate-neutral! Those who take a closer look at the matter realize that the speed of adaptation to more sustainable electricity production must be supported by sizeable public investment budgets. In Germany and the EU, so-called eco-taxes are levied on private transport, which are used to finance alternative energy generation. That is the green theory, as expensive environmental projects should benefit the general public. Because the EU recently gave nuclear energy the "green light" in its taxonomy, this form of energy is now coming back into focus. The protagonists of this view are the nuclear power supporters France, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic, with Germany notably staying out of this topic. Worldwide, over 50 reactors are expected to come online in the next few years, and what is needed for that is uranium. Which shares should be in focus now?

    The demand for critical metals is increasing rapidly worldwide. From growing digitalization to the increased use of cryptocurrencies and AI, from advances in medical technology to electromobility and defense technology - all these areas rely on these critical raw materials. Defense Metals Corporation is an experienced explorer in British Columbia whose Wicheeda project is designed to provide these critical metals. Forward-thinking companies like the crypto exchange Coinbase serve many users who use rare earth metals to power their hard drives for crypto mining. Volkswagen also requires this raw material because car consumers in China have very different needs when it comes to vehicle software than those in the European market. A new CEO for the subsidiary and software company CARIAD knows exactly what needs to be done...
